Pantry Cakes....

Here are a few of my pantry cakes...I used a larger heart mold and bunny~n~carrot cookie cutters. I added coffee dyed cheesecloth, thin hemp string and sweet annie sprigs. A rusty wire can be added to the backs for hanging on pegs......Click on the pic for more detail.....


  1. Hi Patti,
    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. :) It looks like you found a heart mold for making the pantry cakes!
    My mold is from Brown Bag Cookie Art, 1992 Hill Design. I found one like it on eBay...mine's the one of the right. Here's the listing...

    If you do a google search this company has a lot of pretty molds at reasonable prices. :)
    Good Luck Patti!

  2. Patti, These are really great. I love the little cookie cutter ones. Do you have to bake your recipe for hours too? I am going to try the one with plaster paris from Pickled Pepper Patch. I just haven't gotten around to it. I hope you are having a great weekend. Patriots Day in Maine on Monday so really long weekend.

  3. Those are so pretty. Makes me want to start making pantry cakes. :)


  4. Hi Patti, I love your pantry cakes, they are awesome. I hope you are getting my message about the doll that you are wanting the info on. I am trying to email you though the blogging comments, if you aren't please email me at and I will get the info to you. Hugs, Lecia

  5. Love the pantry cakes. Never thought of using a cookie cutter. That's a great idea. They turned out great. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Patti~They turned out really nice. I have a few pantry cakes I made but I never thought of using a cookie cutter. You just gave me another good idea.

    Prim Blessings,

  12. Thanks Everyone! I use 1 cup flour, 1/2 or so of salt, cinnamon (alot)....and 1 cup or so of regular (dry) coffee-not instant for this part... (if you reuse grounds you will add less water), 1/2 cup or so of cold (instant) coffee....keep adding enough to make it all stick together...use a fork to mix it up good....don't make it too watery though...if you do, add more flour coffee and can add other spices too like nutneg or pumpkin pie spice. I quadrupled the recipe to make the large heart and all the bunnies and carrots. When using the cutters, mold the mixture very compactly inside then carefully push it throught the bottom of the cutter onto a greased, foiled cookie sheet. If they're packed tightly they won't break apart when you do creative and have fun...bake on 170 for 6 hrs.

  13. These look great! Love how you finished them up Patti.

    I've not tried to make pantry cakes yet.

  14. Those are so adorable Patti!! You did an awesome job! I love the sweet details you added of the cheesecloth, hemp, and sweet annie... very nice! I have quite a collection of molds that I have been buying over the past year, now I need to hunt down a pantry cake recipe and give it a try!
